Our very first #mitzimodel, Asime (pronounced Ah-seem-uh) is one of the lighting designers here at Mitzi. Just 25 years old, Asime has garnered a strong design portfolio, starting with her studies at Iowa State. Asime has a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Industrial Design, experiencing some very niche internships and post-grad jobs along the way. Scroll to find out more about our youngest designer and her affinity for cheesy snacks and classic novels.
I would consider myself both an industrial and lighting designer. I began as an intern for GE appliances, then switched to home décor and kitchenware with a company in Brooklyn with national distribution. Now, lighting!
I’m originally from Beacon, New York (a nearby neighbor of Mitzi HQ) but have been a bit all over the place. Texas, Iowa, Kentucky, and Florida — I consider that a lot for my age.
Bread and cheese! Any cheese – smoked gouda, goat cheese…
I’ve been lucky enough to travel to a lot of places for my age, but I haven’t been to Asia yet, so I’d say Asia…then, everywhere else!
The Outsiders – I have that book memorized.
Okay — I’d love to pair navy blue walls with marble and hammered copper. Can’t you see it? Ah, it’s my dream bathroom!
I’ve recently gotten into hiking, but it’s definitely not for me (laughs). I enjoy going to the gym and following a routine. My sister is a personal trainer so she has helped me set up what exercises are best for me.
Cocktail of choice?
White Russian, no — a Bloody Mary. What’s the occasion? I have a few favorites.
Ryan, my boyfriend. Cheesy, I know, but you know me and cheese…
Ruby Rose, she’s so cool.
